Opioid Epidemic Declared
a National Public Health Emergency

RU Recovery Ministries is a non-profit 501(c)(3) addiction program. We are partnering, in a grassroots effort, with other faith organizations to raise awareness for Faith-Based Addiction Recovery.

RU has started over 1,500 weekly meetings across The United States and worldwide. With a proven success rate for those that complete the program, RU Recovery is a leader in the battle of addiction and addiction treatment.

UPDATE! HR 299 was successfully voted (92-1) on the Ohio State House Floor.

Do Faith-Based Addiction Recovery Programs Work?

Over 400 studies have been conducted on the role of faith in addiction recovery and these studies have found a success rate of 40%-60% in most faith-based programs.
